I have a circuit that I need to solve for the current in the load resistor, firstly using norton's or thevenin, and then by using mesh / nodal or superposition.
The main reason I need help is that I have had a long break from college after a car accident, and can not find my notes on these topics...hehe and a bit embarrassed to ask my course tutor now that this is over a year overdue.
I have spent some time finding info on the net and have made some progress, but any hints or suggestions would be more than welcome.
I do not want solutions or anything, but am more interested in a plan of attack or adjustment of my thoughts on how to solve the problem that I am attempting as follows, as I feel I am missing something important or doing something moronic.
First, a very bad drawing is attached, hopefully all info is clear.
I am trying to use thevenin's theorem, and removing the capacitor and right hand side voltage source, calculate the inductor and resistor in parallel, then calculate with the capacitor.
Then reverse this process, eliminating the left voltage source first and proceeding from there, finally combining both results to get the value of I for RLoad. (or am I making this all too complicated?)
If anyone knows of a location of a roughly similar problem I could look at anywhere that is roughly similar maybe this would be easier, I have not been able to find a similar enough problem to analyze and compare with.
I have found this site the most helpful so far with regards to getting closer to solutions, and any help would be most appreciated.
